Do you have an abdominal scar, from a C-section, Hysterectomy, Appendectomy or Laparoscopic procedures?
Scar massage can both reduce tightness and restrictions the scar may have on the surrounding areas of your body?
Has your scar had an effect on you in any way?
Scarring is a natural result of the body healing. It could have been from a planned, or unplanned procedure or from a knock, fall, or a burn for example.
The process of scar formation starts the moment the body recognises there is a wound – and it sends in the repair team to get to work.
Over a period of days and weeks layers of the skin affected by the cut begin to heal.
The healing process can vary person to person and nutrition, hydration, rest and movement all play a part in this process.
Once the body has formed scar tissue we may notice that the area feels tight, moves less and there is a loss of feeling around the scar tissue and our movement above or below or around the scar may be restricted.
We may not acknowledge the scar, or notice the changes it has bought to our body, both physically and emotionally.
